The Morgan Library & Museum is proud to present an exhibition celebrating the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's 95 Theses and the start of the reformation. This exhibition brings together nearly 100 works of art, printed books and broadsides, manuscripts, and objects from Luther's lifetime that represent the media mass communication of the Reformation. Exceptional highlights include one of the five existing printed copies of the Ninety-Five Theses, nearly twenty paintings, prints, and drawings by Lucas Cranach the Elder, Luther’s manuscript draft of his Old Testament translation, the pulpit from the church in Wittenberg where Luther preached, and over thirty of Luther’s most important publications and the ones that led the pope to excommunicate Luther and make him the most successful heretic in history.

Word and Image: Martin Luther’s Reformation is made possible with the support of the Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany within the framework of the Luther Decade in cooperation with the Luther Memorials Foundation of Saxony-Anhalt, the Deutsches Historisches Museum, Berlin, and the Schloss Friedenstein Foundation, Gotha under the leadership of the State Museum of Prehistory, Halle and in coordination with the Morgan Library & Museum, New York. It is also made possible with generous support from the Johansson Family Foundation and Kurt F. Viermetz, Munich.
